postcard series “Les Bijoux”

I wasn’t surprised when I discovered a photo of Lantelme on a postcard from “Les Bijoux” (“Jewels”) series 🙂 This series was issued by SIP circa 1903 and included 8 postcards. Photos are without captions, but some faces are still recognizable.

    Hello! Thank you for sharing these amazing postcards! I’m currently writing a paper on an Art Nouveau hair comb. Would you be able to direct me to the source of these postcards from the “Les Bijoux” series? Also, would you happen to know of any archives or sources specific to these types of postcards?
